Wood or metal members that are placed between trusses and joints in an angled position intended to spread the loads.
bracing that is installed diagonally between floor joist or wall studs at the mid span which stiffen the structure.
Structural member used to give weak axis stability to bar joists.
Blocking used between joists to prevent then from rocking and twisting.
A form of bracing in which short wood or metal strips placed between joists to provide additional support and distribute the weight of the structure more evenly over the floor system. Sometimes called struts
Member of the floor or roof system which may be required to make each joist or truss act with load and minimize or equalize deflections.
Small strips of wood or metal fastened diagonally between joists to make them rigid; a method of bracing the floor. Wood is sometimes used as solid bridging.
Boards placed perpendicularly between joists to stiffen the joists. Frequently, bridging is made from the same dimension lumber as the joists.
Small pieces of wood or metal strapping placed in an X-pattern between the floor joists at mid-span to prevent the joists from twisting and squeaking and to provide reinforcement and distribution of stress.
Small wood or metal members that are inserted in a diagonal position between the floor joists at midspan to act as both tension and compression members for the purpose of bracing the joists a spreading the action of loads.
Wood or metal members that are fastened between Trusses and/or joists in an angled position, usually from the top on one to bottom of the next in a crisscross format, intended to spread and even the loading.
Bracing or systems of bracing used between structural members.
The supporting of joists of a floor with small pieces of wood, which are nailed in a diagonal position between them at midspan. Alternately, the provision of temporary financing.
Metal member or short length of wood member used between floor joists in a diagonal position to brace and stiffen joists and to distribute loading.
Members at the second and third points of joist spans to brace one to the next.
Metal struts or 1x2s placed in an X pattern between floor joists to keep them from twisting or warping.
Bracing installed between floor joists to stiffen floor and distribute live loads. Also called cross-bridging.
Wood or metal pieces used to brace floor joists. Back to the Top
Structural member used to give weak axis stability to joist or purlins.
WOOD OR METAL PIECES PLACED BETWEEN FLOOR JOISTS TO MINIMIZE TWISTING AND PROVIDE RIGIDITY.
A method used to resist twisting of joists and for stiffening floor construction by fitting either crossed pieces or solid blocks between the joists.
rows of small diagonal braces nailed between ceiling joists to support floor weight.
Small wood or metal pieces that are placed diagonally between floor joists or wall studs at midspan points to act as floor or wall stiffeners.
Typically small wood pieces that are used to brace the floor joists.
Small wood or metal members that are inserted in a diagonal position between the floor joists or rafters at mid-span for the purpose of bracing the joists/rafters & spreading the load.
